MATH 404 - Intermediate Differential Equations and Dynamics
Section: 001
Term: FA 2011
Subject: Mathematics (MATH)
Department: LSA Mathematics
Credits:
3
Requirements & Distribution:
BS
Advisory Prerequisites:
MATH 216, 256 or 286, or 316.
BS:
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
Repeatability:
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This is a course oriented to the solutions and applications of differential equations. Numerical methods and computer graphics are incorporated to varying degrees depending on the instructor. There are relatively few proofs. Some background in linear algebra is strongly recommended. First-order equations, second and higher-order linear equations, Wronskians, variation of parameters, mechanical vibrations, power series solutions, regular singular points, Laplace transform methods, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, nonlinear autonomous systems, critical points, stability, qualitative behavior, application to competing-species and predator-prey models, numerical methods. MATH 454 is a natural sequel.
